Sadie is a big fan of Lost and Jack (Matthew Fox) is repeatedly shown on screen. In Knocked Up (2007), Ben is very disparaging about Matthew Fox, saying there is nothing interesting about him. Ironically, Paul Rudd was a self-described "mega-fan" of "Lost" when it was on the air. See more »

Wasn't expecting much before watching the movie, but was pleasantly surprised. Firstly and most importantly the comedy was not lame. The jokes were down to earth, made sense and made me laugh sincerely. This rarely happens with all those stupid comedies nowadays. Secondly - the topic and the storyline was so relevant in regards to relationships and families of our society. Though it is a comedy genre - but underneath that you can fell that the problems and situations that are being touched are important and worth thinking about. The performances by Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann and Maude Apatow - were amazing. Paul and Leslie were perfect, but also my respects to the youngest cast members, as they were convincing and did their part flawlessly.
